Yes the power supply akai supplied with the tv is kind of weak so it usualy gets warm because it has trouble keeping up with the energy demand which sometimes leads to tv failure because the tv keeps trying to draw more power and the power supply cant keep up so the tv may eventually quit worse case senario because it is trying so hard to draw more power which causes it to fry the tvs circut board out mine does the same thing it is normal. i just went and bought a aftermarket bigger power supply and the tv works better and the black box stays cooler all you need to do is bring you power supply to radio shack and they will see what you need. Hope this helps

No volume from cable


Hello!
First step: reset your cable box by unplugging of the power supply or unplug power cord of the box. If that's an old fashion big gray one or black one with additional power outlet for TV set, there is a power cord goes into. Unplug it, then plug it back in within 1 minute. not the TV itself, but the cable box's power cord. This will reset it. If you have more modern one or small one for non HD TVs, they have external power adapter, which plugs into those boxes.
Pull that plug out for a minute, then plug it back into. That should take care of your sound issue. Known problem.
Good luck,
Let me know if that took care of your issue.
thanks,
Alex.

My LCD HDTV screen keeps going black.


There are two places to look for the problems, the backlight inverter board and the power supply. Look at the power supply first since it is easier to get to, look for burnt parts, bad capacitors, etc.

TV's on. No Picture...No Sound


Have a problem with Zenith 37 HDTV. Medel number: Z37LZ5D As wathcing TV, along with 'pop' sound, TV went dead. LG service center gave an advice to unplug the power cord and press ON/OFF power switch about 1 min. Then plug power back and turn on the TV. Well, the green light blink for a while and solid green, but still no screen, no audio. Search the Web and someone suggested to replace Power Supply Board which will fix the problem. Again, search the Web and came out with Power Supply Board. LG Electronics/Zenith 'Power Supply Assembl' with $124.95 from PartStore.com. Is it the right solution? Do I have to replace entire Assembly Board? not just replacing some fuse? Any cheaper way to do? If I have to replce PSA board, any suggestion to how? Comment posted on Apr 22, 2009 I have a basic knowledge of electric and electronics, such as rewiring entire house for renovation and assemble entire computer from scratch.
Actually, the TV belongs to my father and the problem that I stated was based on what he told me.
So the question is based on the symptom that I posted, how sure are you that the problem is the Power Supply Board?
Is it good to order PSB? Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Purchased 2 and half years ago. Expired one year warranty. Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Zohail,
This is LCD TV.
There is no problem with the wall socket nor current.
I put other appliances on same wall socket and worked.
It has to be internal problem.
As I mentioned on the main post, there was a 'pop' sound while watching and TV went dead.
Turn on remote control, there is blink green light and then green stays on, but no sound, no screen.
Turn off remote control, light turns red. Comment posted on May 14, 2009 I fixed the TV.
Orderd power supply board which cost me $136.51 total.
Replacing was simple.
Just removed the rear panel cover then electronic board housing cover.
Took power supply board with all the connector cables and replaced with new one.
Problem was a transformer connector which got burned and blow up the plastic cover.
But no problem with fuse and capacitors.

Thanks all for advises.
